14. Perhaps, but unlikely.

Hitler certainly had setbacks in his quest for power even ending up in jail, but he was not a buffoon and the fact that "nobody took him and his followers seriously" was part of the problem. He was able to use the problems in Germany, including the structures of German politics to a rise that only took about 10 years from "buffoon" to war involving every major nation in the world.

We would like to think that it won't happen again, but here we are, with an ethically bankrupt narcissist as the President, supposedly sending thousands of military to the border to stop refugees from violence and death, courting fascists in Brazil and dictators all over the world.

We should not be looking at what Hitler became, we should be studying how he became what he did, in order to stop it from happening again.
